Catching some summer rays in #palmsprings What you all doing this weekend? Assuming watching your feed for @rupaulsdragcon pics too?
My new ride needs a name. As you can see my bestie and I modeling with it in #PalmSprings my @lexususa RC 350 F Sport needs a name. List your submissions here. Best answers will be read on air on @wearechannelq Thanks @adamzelasko for smizing in front of the unnamed car. Thoughts?!?!?
Real talk 🗣 Why the many Many MANY filters upon filters in photos? At this point it’s seems people would rather have a image out there of themselves that more closely resembles a cartoon drawing of who they are and that’s ALL they post of themselves. Usually followed by a poetic or seemingly meaningful post? Is that art? 🤷🏽♂️ . . . Look I get it. We now have the tools in our hands that allow us to eliminate what we deem to be “flaws” and such. But are we better for misrepresenting ourselves. . . . I’m old. So this pic I just took of me at lunch. No filter. No make up. Nada. At 39 years old. (40 next month). My posting ratio has lowered substantially as I watched my body and face change with time. However all I see is images pushed forward which look NOTHING like the people I know in real life. Even places that sell make up like @cvs_beauty have stopped photo editing their ads. I’ve def done my fair share of Botox and I love it. However I still look like me in person. . . . My question is: How much altering of a pic is ok to you personally?
I legit only feel “sexy” or like taking shirtless pics after: A. Drinking and discovering them the next day on my phone. B. After being sick and seeing abs finally. C. When I first wake up after getting ten hours of sleep. This was clearly A. When are you the most confident about posting pics of yourself? 💄: @maccosmetics 👙: @official2xist 💇🏽: @adamzelasko 🤪: @lacremawines Yes that’s Golden Girls playing on my 💻
LatinX power couple realness. @carmen_carrera was a fabulous host of last nights @eqca gala in San Francisco. So many great stories and an empowering evening highlighting why our fight isn’t over. 🌈 🙌🏽. What you CAN’T see is I was trying to stand on my tippy toes here and I still look short. 😂 That’s what happens when you pose w a runway model. 💜 Congrats Rita Moreno on your award and the many other worthy recipients who were honored. 👏🏽
Look... I was THAT guy rocking this kinda look on red carpets as far back as the late 90’s. I’m Obsessed with @mannymua733 the dude is so damn talented and such an incredible make up artist. I’m beyond thrilled to have him on air w us tomorrow am. This is gonna be a fun one. Make sure you tune in 9:15am PST to heat what all happens! Its gonna be 🔥. Got make up questions? Drop em below 🔽

Took a break from Marie Condoing my room to take a selfie. Thicker than usual but leaning into a little more cardio so I don’t have to buy new clothes and also to be a tad more heart healthy. Don’t anticipate a ten pac. Not in the cards. But def excited for summer and the events we have lined up at @wearechannelq
I’m here for you Trans Fam. Always. 🙌🏽❤️
Thanks @ghostofjanemagazine for this awesome throw back moment to fall of 2003 shooting Season 2 of @bravotv @queereye I was a child. Lol. That’s Nemo and Dory my yorkies. Miss them. #Repost @ghostofjanemagazine with @get_repost ・・・ I'm Not Always a Culture Vulture I grew up in a religious household on Long Island and wasn't allowed to listen to secular music or watch TV. Still, I always had a deep passion for music and performance. Fortunately, I was cast right out of high school in Rent, which took me to Toronto and the Big Apple. I starred in my own cabaret show, as well as other Broadway and off-Broadway shows which led to getting hired for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy as the "culture" expert. But it was harder making culture translate for the camera than I thought. After watching a few episodes, I got really depressed. I always considered myself talented, but I came across as the weak player. Watching myself parodied on late-night TV made it worse, and I became even more determined to do better. So l went back to my first love—music—and started to record an album (check out my single "Love Is Good"). lt gave me more creative energy, and I can't wait for people to know me as an artist as well as a makeover guru. Slowly but surely, I've found my niche on Queer Eye. I hunt for new ways to give our straight guys more confidence, and it shows in the new episodes. I'm so grateful to the producers of Queer Eye. Now when I'm on the set for 14 hours a day, I think about the people who stop me on the street to say thank you because the show gave them the courage to come out, or made their husbands behave and smell better, or just made them laugh until they peed their pants. It's all worth it. -@officialjairodriguez [Caption] Hot Tip: Two dogs in your jacket makes you a chick magnet.

Thanks for the @newseum in Washington DC for including the OG @queereye guys in your exhibit about LGBTQ+ history 🏳️🌈 🙌🏽. HUGE HONOR. Yes I’m wearing eyeliner in this pic. Somethings never change. 😂🤷🏽♂️Are you following all the OG boys? @thomfilicia @thetedallen @kyandouglas @carsonkressley #QUEEREYE #bravo #bravotv #lgbtq #fab5 #original #pride #lgbtqhistory
Look who cleans up well. Emceeing the @pawworks gala on the 16th of this month. Pawworks.org for tix. They place animals in need of FurEver homes w people who will love and care for them. The work they do is insanely intense and their compassion and drive inspires me! Who else has a rescue cat or dog?!? I’ll go first. Me! #Rico and #Cookie tiesandtails.org
I went w the #Pink. Are you a #Beach Or #pool person?!?!
#TBT To that time I played #Javier on @magicianssyfy I was pretty nervous to shoot this scene. @halebofosho was an incredible scene partner but meeting then being in a sex scene moments later is a pretty funny experience. I made a ton of nervous anxious small talk 😂🤦🏽♂️. I was such a big fan of the series so it was cool to have a small moment on it. Ever been in a situation that made YOU anxious?!
My forever hero. From GREASE as Teen Angel to Broken Hearts Club to his TONY award winning role in Kinky Boots to now staring on @poseonfx and @ahsfx Billy has been and out loud member of our community for decades. I am thrilled the world gets to see all of this legendary realness. Truly an Icon! @csiriano nailed this look. Hoping to see more men mixing up fashion norms.
Cause Rico is a terror but sometimes he’s an absolute sweetheart. Sooo does the terrible twos apply to dogs?!? Asking for ME!
Def getting there. Thanks @sethenator for the diet plan! I try and love myself at every size but when I cut out gluten and most dairy I felt WAY lighter and lost the prego belly I couldn’t shake. Is it possible to be body positive for others but want yourself to be fit and strong? Trust me. Not chasing abs. That dream is in the past. But as I watch men mature I am fascinated on how we keep our self love while also pursuing fitness/wellness goals (two different things I know). Thoughts?!?
Soooo excited for tomorrow’s show! It’s HUGE in honor of @recordingacademy show last night we are chatting pop culture news w the very handsome @marcosquared Model @theonlysteven in the 7:00 hour PST. Then one of my all time FAVORITE musicians the insanely talented and hunky @stevegrandmusic joins us in the 8:00PST Hour! Capping this off with recording artist @flaviaspeaks in the 9:00 hour PST ! It’s gonna be HUGE. Got questions for @mikalahgordon and I to ask any of these guests?!? Dm me or @wearechannelq Or you can drop them in the comments section. ⛓ in bio!!!
